Have you ever had weed brownies

Avocado brownies

Anyone who knows me will immediately recognize that there is something wrong with this blog post, an idea what it could be?


is actually not on my table and certainly not in brownies. So what happened

Blogevent CLIII from Zorra and Ikea

is pending and also a challenge that I have imposed on myself. To the blog event of Zorraand Ikea, I had already written a post on how to conjure up a delicious mojo from supposed weeds. And in keeping with the topic, I also took the second โ€œToo good to goโ€ campaign. More on that in a moment. And that's my challenge too. Because after you don't know what to expect and you want to avoid food waste, you have to conjure up something out of all the fruit and vegetables. No matter what it is.

I would say that it fits perfectly with the blog event topic and that way you can easily broaden your own horizons. So exactly what cooking and baking should do, at least for me.

Too good to go

is an app in which restaurants, supermarkets and anyone with leftover food can join and thus contribute to the prevention of food waste.

As the name of the app suggests, far too good to be thrown away, this is about leftovers that can no longer be returned to the kitchen or food that no longer works in normal sales. So all these dishes / food are not thrown away but sold cheaply to people who want to make a small contribution here.

Unfortunately, we don't have that many participants yet, but I hope that will change soon. But in big cities the choice is really great. Have a look.

A bag of vegetables and fruits

I ordered via the app. It's super easy and this whole bag really only cost 3.50 EUR (which I paid for myself). But it's just a surprise bag without knowing what you're really getting into.

I had beetroot in my first bag, but I gave it another try and so is mine Beetroot chutney originated that even I like it even though I'm really not a fan of beetroot.

And now there was avocado in that bag. At first I thought great, and then of course not just one but 4-5, but not as big as you sometimes see. What am I doing with it? Because the taste of avocado just doesn't convince me and I just can't do anything with it. But well, I said to myself I would at least try something out of everything that was in the bag.

So I decided on brownies - everything tastes better with chocolate, maybe avocado too. And so I also manage to try something again.

I gave two avocados to colleagues at work that I know they like to eat, the rest is fine for me ๐Ÿ™‚


I was a bit skeptical when mixing the dough and I couldn't try the dough either. Off in the oven and cross your fingers that everything will work out

And the brownies rose so well, almost better than the classic variant. Thatโ€™s really great and Iโ€™m happy. The first sense of achievement with avocado. So let it cool down and put more chocolate on it, better safe than sorry. More chocolate can never hurt ๐Ÿ™‚

But now it depends on the taste!

Best brownies

I've ever eaten. And no trace of avocado in the taste ๐Ÿ™‚ I definitely didn't imagine the result to be that good and I'm still very enthusiastic. The consideration now goes as far as whether I will bake other brownies at all or just that now is the variant that will always be available.

Juicy, fluffy and quick to make, what more could you want. Plus a lot of chocolate, a dream of a brownie and not finding an avocado flavor.

A great success that I would probably never have had if I hadn't โ€œsavedโ€ this vegetable and fruit bag, I'm afraid avocado will come home more often now, even if only for brownies ๐Ÿ™‚

So that you can also enjoy these delicious brownies, this is it
